The global glass fiber market is expected to reach $9.4 billion by 2023

   July 4 2018
According to a new market report published by Lucintel, the future of the global glass fiber market is promising with opportunities in the end use industries such as transportation, construction, pipe and tank, electrical and electronics, wind energy, and consumer goods. The global glass fiber market is expected to reach an estimated $9.4 billion by 2023, and it is forecast to grow at a CAGR of 3.9% from 2018 to 2023. The major growth driver for glass fiber is the rise in demand for products made of glass composites; these include bathtubs, pipes, tanks, printed circuit boards, wind blades, and automotive parts.

On the basis of its comprehensive research, Lucintel forecasts that the segments of construction and pipe & tank are expected to show average growth during the forecast period from 2018 to 2023.

Within the global glass fiber market, transportation is expected to remain the largest market by value and volume consumption. Government regulations, such as CAFE Standards in the US and carbon emission targets in Europe, are putting pressure on OEMs to incorporate lightweight materials to curb the overall vehicle weight, and this is the key driver for glass fiber in the transportation industry.

By manufacturing process, injection molding is the major process utilized to manufacture glass composite parts because of high-output production rate, low labor cost, and design flexibility.

By product form, multi-end roving is the major product form of glass fiber used to manufacture composite parts. Multi-end roving fiber is commonly used in transportation, construction, and marine end use applications.

Asia Pacific is expected to remain the largest region by value and volume and is also expected to experience the highest growth over the forecast period because of growth in construction, transportation, and the electrical and electronics segments. Growing economy, growth in population, and urbanization are the major forces that drive the construction segment, especially in China and India.

Emerging trends, which have a direct impact on the dynamics of the industry, include cost optimization and performance enhancement of glass fibers.  Owens Corning, Jushi, Nippon Electric Glass Co.Ltd., Taishan Fiberglass Inc., Chongqing Polycomp International Corporation (CPIC), Johns Manville, Nittobo, Goa Glass Fiber Ltd, Taiwan Glass Group, and Sichuan Weibo New Material Group Co., Ltd. are among the major suppliers of the glass fiber market.
